i was here once before and it seemed to help some. i am hoping since the flashbacks and nightmares have started again that i would come back and seek support and help from people who understand and care... i am also posting on the self harm board due to self harm issues that stem from this . if any advice or kind words they are and would be appreciated thanks you all so much.

Hi April. Glad you found this place, sorry you need it. It's always nice to find support from people who understand and care.

I have been through a lot of therapy regarding SA. I still sometimes have the nightmares and wake up terrified. I used to always try to find a reason as to why they were starting up again. Recently my therapist said something to the me about this. He said that when I'm awake the bad memories come up because of something someone said, something in a book or movie, some object or sound or smell that reminds me of being SA. When I'm sleeping, it's unreasonable to expect that
